Viva Las Vegas!!

Hi & Happy Saturday! Well as you're reading this I am in Las Vegas kicking off a birthday bonanza with my friends, hee hee!! I'll be back Tuesday evening & taking Wednesday off to recover, LOL! Hope ya have a great weekend too!

Some NewsBitz for Ya:

**BLOG CANDY ALERT--head over to Susana's store blog "Follow Your Heart" to celebrate the blog's 10,000 hits--she's giving away a $25 gift certificate to her store!

**Whiff of Joy--If you haven't pre-ordered your Summer Kit which features 15 stamps by Elisabeth Bell & sentiments, you only have until May 4th! It's a great deal!

So first up today, is my card for this month's Magnolia-licious May sketch by the lovely Sharon Caudle (friend & DT sistah)!! I used a new Magnolia from the "Chasing Butterflies Collection" that will soon be for sale at Magnolia-licious, isn't she just the cutest?! That yummy dp is from and the flowers are new Hydrangeas by Prima (next to tulips, hydrangeas are my next fave flower)! I added some lovely, blingy glitterdots to the flower centers & top of the card. I also paper pieced her lil' dress with some of that fun polky-dot paper! The sentiment is from this year's anniversary set from PTI. I also cuttlebugged the coredinations cs behind her and added some stickles to her wings! If you participate in the sketch challenge, make sure and send Diana of Magnolia-licious your project by email for the gallery!!

Next up, is a card I did using one of H&M Stamps new stamp sets! I ADORE this set called "Seeds of Kindness"-it's just fabulous!! I double-stamped the flowers in black & yellow inks and then added black stickles on top of the flowers. The yummy dp is from Autumn Leaves (daisy) & the dotted dp is from PTI. I cut out the flower layers with my Labels 1 Nestabilities & added some yellow rhinestones to the flower centers!

Close-up shows the double-stamping and glittery black stickles I added to the flowers! I love these colors together & I really love how this card turned out, and hope you do too!

I'll be back posting next week for ya & will have lots of pics to share with you (much to my friend's chagrin!)!! Wish me lots of luck in Vegas--hopefully the birthday gods will look down kindly on me, LOL!!
